Hi-Point 40 S&W: “The Ugliest Handgun You’ll Ever Want To Own”
So, if you’re like me, you find yourself pinching pennies to just get by in this uncertain economy. And with that in mind, going-out and spending $500.00 on a new handgun just isn’t in the cards. But since I needed a weapon for home defense, I went shopping to see what was out there in my limited budget. What I found was quite surprising. After I made the rounds of all the local pawn shops in my area and was just about ready to give-up on my search, Larry, a buddy of mine, told me about a company called: Hi-point Firearms. He said if you were looking for a cheap and inexpensive NEW gun, Hi-Point would fit my limited budget.
After visiting their website and seeing all that they had to offer, I was quite pleasantly surprised. They offer a different range of pistols, in calibers ranging from 380 ACP, on up to and including a 45 ACP. I decided on the 40 Cal SW, because it was a bigger caliber and the price was right. Brand new right out of the box, it went for just under $200.00 and since I saved a bunch on the purchase, I bought two 50 round boxes of ammunition to go along with it.
Another reason I made the purchase, was that Hi-Point is an AMERICAN company and the firearms are made in here in America, BY Americans. So you’ll be helping-out your fellow citizens if you buy one. Beneath the video in this article, I will place links to their website, so that you can take a look at all of the products they offer for yourself. The only drawback to this weapon is, if you want any accessories, or more magazines, you have to purchase them from Hi-Point. But when you go to their website, you’ll see that everything is still reasonably priced, so in my opinion, it’s still a bargain.
The Hi-Point pistol isn’t the prettiest handgun I’ve ever owned, but it does the job it was intended to do and who can argue with that ?
Here is a video of a range test for the pistol:
